The Biggest Drawings Ever Drawn #ArtTuesday

If you’ve ever wandered around the American Museum of Natural History, you may have ended up in the Hall of African Peoples, where one can find masks and sculptures and crafts that are beautiful to behold. But one has to wonder: why are these masks and sculptures and crafts in the American Museum of Natural History, and not in the Metropolitan Museum of Art? Crafts from Sumer and Rome and Iberia can be found in the Met, but “folk art” is set within the purview of anthropology. If we imagine all art as just that — art. That includes the Nazca Lines, and it now includes what may be the largest artworks humanity has ever created. Here’s more from News 18:

Researchers have found what may be known as the largest set of geoglyphs in the entire world. Geoglyphs are huge handmade depictions and patterns that are built upon or carved into the ground. Their true appearance can only be seen from far above. The recently discovered mysterious old drawings carved by humans are the first ones to be reported from the Indian subcontinent. They are found to be hidden in the vast, arid expanses of Thar desert that cover almost 100, 000 square metres of land, dwarfing other individual geoglyphs like those in the Nazca desert in southern Peru.
